unattractive, the obama administration needs to see if there is a path through which it can pressure iran to make a deal. in a thoughtful essay in the current issue of "foreign affairs" the columbia scholar jurvis points out that this kind of coercive diplomacy, at least from washington, has rarely worked. he points out in panama, 1989, iraq, 1990, serbia, 1998, afghanistan, 2001 and iraq, 2003, washington tried sanctions pressure and the threat of force to get leaders to change course, it didn't work. and washington had to make good on its threat to go to war. with north korea, coercive diplomacy also failed, but in this case, washington decided against military action choosing, instead, to contain the regime. making coercive diplomacy requires a mix of threats and promises. with regard to iran, the administration has made the threats plenty of times. with clarity and credibility. but while the sticks have been handled shrewdly, the carrots have not. the united states is unable to define for itself or for the world what would be an acceptable deal and, most importantly, what it is willin
credibility with kind of average americans so, if the obama administration could get them onboard with some sort of gun control and they would call it common sense, of course, gun control. that would be huge. it's unclear whether or not that is going to happen, but i think it's very likely that's what the white house hopes to do. >> you wrote -- you wrote in your piece on this. walmart cooperated with michael bloomberg. bloomberg is a gun hater. he wants to control all guns, i believe he wants to ban all guns. i wasn't really sure. walmart's not going to ban all guns. the administration's not going to ask him to do that. >> you're right. absolutely right. walmart is thought of as this conservative company. but as you know, larry, big business tends to benefit from regulation. and, in fact, walmart already complies with bloomberg's. he has this thing where walmart is already voluntarily complying with onerous regulations voluntarily. so if they were -- let's just pie in the sky here. let's say they came out in favor of closing the gun loophole. that means i couldn't sell you a gun, for examp
because we have some confidence that the obama administration, if it comes to it, we'll do it. if it's necessary. a lot of the people who supported president obama said, "mark my words. he is a man of his word, he does this quite seriously." then he turns around and appoints perhaps the most prominent skeptic of any kind of military intervention in iran as his defense secretary. if you're sitting in israel, you're wondering just how reliable is the united states and maybe we should go it alone. so, for that reason alone, simply the appointment of chuck hagel is going to make the israelis more skiddish and perhaps more prone to act. >> here's the irony. who said that military action against iran could prove catastrophic? that was robert gates. our former defense secretary. who said that it could embroil us in a conflict that we can forget? that was leon panetta. it was true, bret, i think you are right that we need the military option on the table as hagel has repeatedly said. that does not mean we can't have a public conversation in this country about the tremendous dangers that war
with the obama administration it would be hard to say he had a woman problem. nevertheless, the fact is, we need to keep in mind especially at this pivotal time extent there's a problem with women, news stories saying women are, perhaps, more reluctant to take jobs that require longer house than we've seen anne marie slaughter article at that. we need to keep that in mind. you and i both, as fathers of young children, see how difficult it can be to do anything @after 5:00 p.m. if you're concerned with a child to the extent that burden falls disproportionately on women and we need to keep having that conversation so i'm glad to see that come up. >> and we have to talk about diversity of political opinion. on the issue of women, go back to president obama's first term welcome a large group of women, leaders, who were then his cabinet and within the white house, gather with him to say, we may be here but we want to be heard. there was an uprising at the very beginning. and then now, look at who's leaving. hilda solace, the department of labor, first latino secretary of labor, extremely progressive.

at the most important post in the obama administration. the president nominated his chief of staff, jack lew to, replace timothy geithner. lew has been the budget director for both presidentses clinton and obama. he is viewed as a experienced and hand in negotiations but does not have strong ties to wall street. it is likely he will be confirmed by the senate. >>> the dow jones industrial average continued to rise on earnings news through the week. the s&p 500, in fact, closed at a new five-year high thursday. earnings season is under way, and dow component alcoa kicked off. profits in line at alcoa, while revenues were better than analysts expected. financial giant, wells fargo, beat expectations, as did american express. apple is said to be considering a cheaper version of the iphone. the iphone 5 costs about $200 with a contract with a wireless carrier. the less expensive version would have a plastic body. >>> the debt ceiling, the new treasury secretary, so will washington be an obstacle to the markets and the economy, or will washington actually be a help? joining me now, greg ip, u.s.

better than the bush administration. >> i hold president obama to a high standard, i would like to think we could do a little bit better than the clinton administration, not just go back to the clinton administration, although, if i were about to go off the fiscal cliff, i would hide behind jay carney, too. >> you are not objective about this, apparently, having worked for michelle fourneau. were you surprised that she didn't get the nod? were you surprised that chuck hagel specifically did? >> i was surprised. i thought it was a fantastic opportunity for president obama to make an historic gesture and nominate the first female secretary of defense. it is one of those situations where it struck me, obviously, i am completely biased. but it struck me that the most qualified person was a woman. chuck hagel is an impressive guy who i admire in a lot of ways. i don't know why he thinks that it takes a republican to be nominated two times out of three. >> michelle fourneau, her job as under-secretary was historically high level achievement, for somebody in the defense world. when she was ther
it down the first time, the banker bail out the last month or so of george bush's administration. obama and mccain came off of the campaign trails. they got on the phone and they got the congressional black caucus to change their votes and twist some arms and it passed and obama became president. i announcing that is why he became president, but you have to look at where the money is coming from. host: he is asking questions about jack lew, the next secretary of treasury. dave clark from politico joins us to learn a little bit more about him. to the caller pose a question about his background, particularly about wall street, can you tell us and on his experiences there and what he brings to the white house? caller: most of his background is predominantly a denture washington. he was a top house aide for a long time. he worked in the clinton administration. in the obama administration he was also the director as well working at the state department. he did spend two or three years, 2006 until 2009 at citigroup in new york. he is described more as a manager as of somebody making investmen
been, those two worlds. >> when you look at what the obama administration did for wall street, we have a story about the bailouts and what egregious handout they were and how they are still going on. the bank secretly got billions and billions in secret loans from the feds, basically zero percent interest rate, didn't tell their shareholders that. their ceos were busy buying and selling stocks, so there's a question of insider trading that was going on off the bailout, and none of those people have been touched or looked at. so, you know, wall street got this huge handout, and yet during the election they came out 5-1 in terms of financial contributions against obama. there's a real disconnect in terms of their own world view. if this has been a republican administration, they would have been ecstatic. there's politics going on here as well. >> we were talking about this in the break, we played the ad aig has been running on the air, which is thank you, america, thank you, america, thank you, america. some sort of brand management, or attempt thereof, but the fact they are engaged in t

walmart. a me go today in washington on gun violence. an obama administration official telling cnn walmart's representative will meet only with attorney general, eric holder, and not with the vice president. remember, walmart was originally not going to attend the meeting at all but changed its mind yesterday. >>> when it comes to ending gun violence, vice president joe biden made it clear if congress doesn't pass new gun laws, the president could go it alone, as in bypass congress and issue an executive order. >> the president is going to act. there are executive orders and action that can be taken. we haven't decided what that is yet. we are compiling it all with help of the attorney general and all the rest of the cabinet members as well as legislative action we believe is required. >> gun rights advocates took the remark as a threat charging it is the first step in sfrtrippin americans of their second amendment rights. listen to rush limbaugh. >>> when biden, himself, a liberal democrat, says himself, the president, cabinet, attorney general, a bunch of leftist democrats are talking ab
to succeed timothy geithner as treasury secretary. lew's already part of the obama administration. he is currently the white house chief of staff. he was also budget director during the obama and clinton administrations. now if lew is confirmed, you may be thrown for a loop when you look at a five or ten-dollar bill literally. look at this sort of a doodle here. believe it or not, this is lew's signature. the treasury secretary's signature appears on the front of paper money, as we know. you could very well see that on newly printed money. perhaps, though, he'll take the lead from his predecessor, timothy geithner's signature was a tad bit messy, you see there. he cleaned it up when he became treasury secretary. >>> the president also looking for a new labor secretary. hilda solis resigned yesterday. she will likely return home to california and run for a seat on the los angeles county board of supervisors. three cabinet members will stay on the job for the president's second term. they are attorney general eric holder, health and human services secretary kathd lean sebelius -- kathle

they believe that the obama administration is less interested in protecting children and more interested in attacking the second amendment. so the nra says that the white house is set on blaming the actual weapon rather than getting tougher on the person using it. here's some of that. >> we feel very strongly that gun crime needs to be prosecuted vigorously and that is not happening under this administration. the president and the vice president on the other hand blame everything on firearms, and we know enough and we've got a little experience with firearms and what works and what doesn't work, to think that what they're talking about is essentially cosmetic feel-good legislation that will not prevent another newtown, much as they would like to do that. martha: there is that as background here. chris wallace joins me right now, anchor of "fox news sunday." good morning, chris. good to have you with us. >> good morning to you, martha. martha: i want to listen joe biden as well and listen closely what he said. everyone is trying to figure out this morning what the white house can accompli

fifteen million recipients have been added in the obama years and the cost is doubled. this administration gets people to sign up. this is what we want? a handout culture which drags youngsters in right from the start of their lives where dependency is taught from the get go. surely not. it goes against the american dream. i wasn't born here but i think i know what america is all about or used to be all about. individual responsibility, personal effort, liberty and justice for all. where is the liberty in dependency? where is the individual responsibility in looking to somebody else to feed you? defenders say food stamps for kids helps the economy and make some healthy. maybe. probably true. one in four children eating courtesy of taxpayers' changes the nature of our society. entitlement is not a birdie. dependency is not freedom. a handout is not prosperity.
